SAVE THE RUDDY DUCKS

The government is planning a mass cull of the blue beaked Ruddy duck. The ruddy duck, named after its chestnut plumage, was introduced to Spain, mates with the native Spanish white-headed duck, which is apparently becoming threatened due to cross breeding. The governments solution to this?: Mass murder.

The 6,000 small fowl will be shot by government-paid marksmen because they breed 'too successfully.'
According to the government, The mass slaughter will cost 5 million and last six years.

Under pressure from the Spanish, the UK Government has already
carried out a limited cull of 2,500 ducks in three regions.

Their trial has been so successful the government now intends to widen
the cull to kill the remaining 3,500 ducks that continue to live in Britain's
lakes and reservoirs.

The government are also talking about 'compulsory access' to the land of those who don't want anything to do with the cull, to get to the ducks.

PLEASE sign this petition to help stop this outrageous mass slaughter. We need to show the government that we will not tolerate such barbaric measures, and put up with seeing our wildlife blasted. There are other ways to deal with this, and these beautiful birds shouldn't have to suffer, see each other suffer, slaughtered, for something man has caused in the first place.

    Ruddy ducks are now naturalised and this is natural selection in action. It's not for us to play god, especially when we are the ones responsible for both the introduction of ruddy ducks and the decline of white-headed ducks in the first place Address; co
